Who will be a hero for our Herbie? He has not had an easy time in this life and is understandably unsure about trusting humans. But there is a beautiful soul behind Herbie’s amber eyes. This handsome boy just wants to feel safe and loved; he wants to build his confidence and be playful and happy! He needs to be  in a very special forever home, without children, cats or small animals – a larger female dog may be okay – Herbie will begin to show how smart, curious and genuinely loving he is at heart. Could you be the person or family who saves Herbie? Please adopt Herbie today! 💙💙💙

Herbie is a ~ 3 1/2-year old, 60 lbs  Shepherd/Hound mix.  He is being fostered in New Paltz, NY. He is a very active dog; and needs lots of exercise (and not in a dog run or park with other dogs), he is NOT a couch potato, so he needs a home with a 6-foot fenced backyard and active, engaged savvy dog humans.  His foster mom says : “He is completely housebroken, can follows basic commands; sit, stay, come.  He will sit and await permission before eating. He loves walks and requires a lot of exercise, I usually walk him about 4 miles a day.  He is affectionate in his own way. He will put his nose right in your face and just stay there!  He will also put his head in your lap or push it into your hand when looking for attention. Herbie doesn’t love the car because he hasn’t experienced it very much.” His ideal home would have another confident, friendly, playful dog friend as a role model because he is a bit shy and will need to adjust. Herbie is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

The adoption fee is $500.  We require a 6-foot fully fenced yard and not an invisible fence.
